46. When the fuck did it become the Democrats' job to save the Republican Party?

When they would have died after Obama was elected because they twice elected Bush.

Thats what Obama's "lets be friends" bipartisan approach was for, giving them relevancy when they would have shriveled up and died as a national party in 2009.

Now they've mastered the filibuster in Congress, leveraging their minority status into an almost majority position as far as legislation is concerned.

This isnt news, many here had warned back in 09 that he should have been more assertive in dealing with the conservatives (in both parties), and this is the end result of him making nice.
